No Whole Wheat, What a Treat!

So, for Jake's Fathers' Day breakfast treat, I refrained from using my typical whole wheat flour for some fresh strawberry coffee cake. He was happier than he should have been!

3 C all-purpose flour
2 t baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 C butter, room temperature
1-1/2 C organic granulated sugar
3 eggs
2 t pure vanilla extract
1 C organic plain yogurt
1 C unsweetened applesauce
1 cup fresh strawberries
1/2 C organic brown sugar
1 T ground cinnamon
1.Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter and flour a 9" x 13" baking pan.

2.In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the yogurt, applesauce, and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; stir into the batter just until blended. Fold in the strawberries.

3.Spoon half of the batter into the prepared pan. In a small bowl, stir together the brown sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle half of this mixture over the batter in the pan. Spoon remaining batter over the top and then sprinkle the remaining sugar mixture. Use a knife or thin spatula to swirl the sugar layer into the cake.

4.Bake for 65 to 70 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the crown of the cake comes out clean. Cool in the pan over a wire rack. Slice and serve.
